Good morning everyone, happy Friday!
Oh dear, I started writing this post at 8.30 this morning and I got side tracked. The time is now 1.35 and I think it's time I finished it lol. There's not much happening apart from work today except that I'm going out at about 3.30. I will tell all, with pictures, tomorrow ;)
Ok, cards.....I've made a few cards for hubby this week as his stock for his night job was getting low. I made him some birthday cards earlier in the week and the following cards were made yesterday.

Good morning everyone, happy Friday!
The theme this week at the Less Is More challenge blog is a colour theme and they have chosen Lime Green and Black, not a colour combination that I would readily think of so it was a pleasant surprise when my card was finished and I like it lol The challenge this week is sponsored by Clearly Besotted stamps and boy, I can see why Stephanie chose the name of her blog. I came across them just before Christmas last year and am building up a nice little selection. You must go over for a visit but leave your purse behind because you will definitely spend some money :)
Thanks for looking, I'm off to bed now. See you tomorrow. xx
You want to hear the blooming racket in our garden at the mo, they sound like very distant motor bikes! I can't remember frogs being as noisy with their mating calls....maybe it's cos they are so late in the season. It's not noticeable during the day because of all the other noises but when it's dark and still outside it's really quite loud. We are up to 11 clumps of spawn in our pond so far which I'm pleased about as I was worrying last week that we wouldn't get any this year because of the cold weather.
So now for my cards (I've still got enough Kanban stuff to make hundreds more cards for this section of my blog)
A4MRSI Silver Mirri card
White 5mm Pearls
The striped paper, as before, is from my scrap box with no header.
I have a Sugar Buttons card in the latest edition of Simply Cards and Papercraft, what a shame it's too ,late for Kanban to see it.
All made using the Sugar Buttons kit from Kanban

It's ok, I do know it's Tuesday but I'm up to Sunday with my posts so I'm getting there :) as I showed the card yesterday which was made for the couple who got married on Saturday I thought I'd show the stuff I made as part of the wedding package.
This photo isn't brilliant but I couldn't go and take another as one of the hotel banqueting staff took them for me and they don't stand out very well on the table. The name labels are attached to small organza bags which contain two heart shaped chocolate in ivory foils and they can then be used as place cards.
Thanks for dropping by :) xx

The wedding season is in full swing now and it will probably stay this way until around Halloween. We then, generally get a couple of weeks to start planning C*******s cards and the weddings pick up again. Up until four or five years ago the weddings came to an abrupt halt at the end of October then started again in a vengeance at the end of January. This doesn't happen any more, I'm getting stationery orders all year round now which is great. I now supply one of local Holiday Inns with the favours and on the day stationery for their 'Whirlwind Wedding' package deal and today's wedding colours are plum and ivory. Hubs was djing at the wedding so I just added my name to the card I made for him to give to the happy couple.
Thanks for looking. xx
Funky Friday has been and gone and I'm playing catch up again.....I don't suppose I would be me if I blogged every day without fail lol
Yes folks, I am still doing my Kanban Thursday posts which surprisingly will be posted on a Thursday :) Last week just sort of caught me on the hop with it being a bank holiday and being away, I didn't know where the heck I was. However, I shall attempt to catch up and stay caught up for the time being! mmm I wonder how long that will last lol,
So now onto my cards

It's my turn to add my project to the Get Funky And Craft so I made a card using the beautiful Just For Jen download which is available from the Funky Hand web site. I've added a folded flower to the front of my card so I thought I would do a quick picture tutorial to go with it just in case anyone fancies making one :) The sketch used for the card is the new one for April from the Kathy's Waffle Sketch File challenge blog which I have used upside down....
Thanks for dropping by, back soon xx
I have a couple more wedding bits and bobs that I haven't added here yet so I thought I would take this opportunity as it's Wedding Wednesday and I haven't done one for a while.
These were made for a wedding at the Holiday Inn Jct 36, A1M, Doncaster
Thanks for looking, see you tomorrow....or rather later today :) xx

Why was it so terrible I hear you ask....well, I spent almost all day...well, about 7 1/2 hours cooped up on a busy train :( They are really not meant for two people sat side by side on a long journey and what made it worse was the fact that we had travelled down First Class (spoilt or what :)). I couldn't stretch my legs or my back, well in fact, I couldn't get comfortable at all and to top it off, my Kindle ran out of charge about half an hour from home and I couldn't be bothered to go rooting through my bag to find the charger so I sat and stared at the poor unloved gardens we went past. It's made me a little more optimistic about mine though....I'm not the only one who still has a scruffy garden as I can't get outside cos of the blooming weather.
I had a fabulous weekend in Cornwall thanks to my wonderful hubby and this was the view from our hotel room window!
I will hopefully be on the right track by tomorrow as I think I'm still in CMT (Cornish Maybe Time lol, the clocks did go forward whilst we were there too)
Thanks for dropping by. xx

I hope everyone has had a nice lie in this morning to compensate for the clocks going forward last night (and it's at this point that those of you with small children will be telling me to 'go away' lol) At this rate peeps, it will soon be blooming Ch******s!!!
Let's have a look at another card or two and forget I said that :)
Both cards are made using digital downloads from the very wonderful Funky Hand and both are available until midnight tonight at the unbelievable price of 52p......can you believe that?
Right, it's time for me to go, see you tomorrow :) xx
